Course Description

Windows 8 is the biggest change to Microsoft's operating system in almost twenty years, and in this Windows 8 training course we will get you up to speed and productive as quickly as possible.

You will learn how to use the new Start screen and how it works with the desktop, how to customize your settings and preferences and how to use the built-in apps and accessories. You will also learn tips for managing your files and folders, and throughout the course, you'll learn lots of shortcuts.

After finishing this course, you will know how to make Windows adapt to your needs, rather than the other way around. You will learn how to pin important programs and web sites to the Start screen and remove those you don't need. You'll learn tips and shortcuts to manage files and folders, so they will always be at your fingertips and how to search for them if you don't know where they are. You will also learn how Windows can keep you safe from viruses and other malware.
